Anyone have info or a link where I can find a tort pickguard for a short scale SX?

    I've been looking online with no luck. I have a SX vintage series short scale jazz that's my pro-tools bass. I've been looking for a tort pickguard for it. No luck from Rondo music. Anyone know where I can get one online? Thanks!

    Try here:


    You may have to send them a tracing of your current pickguard since their pre-cut selection likely won't match yours exactly. In any case, their off-the-shelf stuff is good, so I expect their custom jobs will be good as well.

    Generally SX pickguards don't even fit SX basses without a bunch of filing etc.

    You have to get a exact copy of your old one at one of the online custom pickguard places.

    I get all my SX pickguards here:

    Pickguardian Custom Pickguards

    It happens to be a shop local to me, but it's online too. You send Tony your old pickguard and he has a setup to make an exact copy in whatever you want. For Tort you just say tort, but if you want to ponder what to get he'll send you a bunch of samples to hold up to your bass. So you send in one pickguard and get back two.

    IMHO a Tort pickguard in place of the usual SX white or black really makes the bass look terrific. Which reminds me, I've got to get over there to drop off the pickguard from my new SX 6 string for a Tort one now that he's back from vacation.
